First of all, thanks so much for all of the wonderful birthday wishes for Audrey...she had a positively pink, perhaps even a Pinkalicious, day!
I mentioned the schizophrenia of having both a funeral and Audrey's birthday party on the same day. Another slightly strange confluence of events was having this post about the lack of autism coverage in Parents magazine's April issue spotlighted on BlogHer on the same day that my essay, The Real Holy Grail, was posted on Parents magazine's blog, which has been featuring daily essays from parents of children with autism every day in April in response to outcry over their lack of autism coverage which I discussed in my post. Got that?
It's getting to be a little bit late in the month to be highlighting the original post, in which I shared the details of how to submit an essay to Parents for their nod to Autism Awareness Month. Today being April 20, there's only 10 more days to go before we don't have to care about autism anymore. But if you care to, check out my contribution to Parents GoodyBlog where I talk about the importance of keeping your sense of humor. HA! Right.
